“Pilate therefore said to Him, ‘Are You a king then?’
“Jesus answered, ‘You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.’
“Pilate said to Him, ‘What is truth?’” (John 18:37-38).
Unlike the Pharisees who were blinded by religious externalism, when Pontius Pilate comes face to face with the Truth (John 14:6), his question exposes the reality of his spiritual blindness by moral relativism. Moreover, this battle over truth has been going on since the beginning of time. While spiritual ignorance in the forms of paganism and idolatry has existed for almost just as long, what we see now is an acceleration and amplification of it through technology and mass communication. So what has the Left turned to again in these last days? Moral Relativism.
Leftism’s ultimate aim is to destroy and/or corrupt the truth. We know Satan is the source of this corruption (John 8:44). Thus, since Leftism (in all its varying shades) corrupts the truth, we can know without a shadow of doubt that when introduced, no matter how well intended, the end state always becomes antichrist (1 John 2:22).
In order for the left to cement these changes into the framework of our Judeo-Christian based society, they have to: a) destroy the traditional family unit, and b) target the next generation (i.e.…the children). This is why they have been so adamant about incorporating Common Core, Darwinian Evolution, multiculturalism, “progressive” aberrant sex education, globalism, etc., into preschool and elementary level schooling through education, cartoons, and pop culture. In their minds, children are impressionable; and the younger they can reach them, the better.
Even better for them, is if these children come from impoverished and broken homes. (See doctrines of devils again.) Add in the onslaught of prescription mood-ameliorating behavior drugs, safe-spaces, micro aggressions, revisionist history, and the normalization of homosexuality, marital infidelity, abortion, gender “dysphoria,” (et. al.) into the mix, and you have the most confused generation to have ever lived.
This is intentional. This is by design.
However, if you mention the reality that LGBTQ is targeting children, you will immediately be labeled a hateful bigot and persecuted to the fullest extent the left can dish out. Yet time after time, we see pedophilia rear its ugly head in scandal after scandal whether we are talking about Hollywood, Pizzagate, “elitist” circles, and so on.
In a bit of what I think is divinely inspired irony, there is a movement afoot today to add a “P” to the LGBTQ acronym. The “P” would stand for Pedophilia, or as that term is being redefined to MAP (Minor Attracted Persons). I say “divinely inspired” simply because the Left has for so long denied that children were their primary target. Now, even this is bubbling to the surface, and it is as if God had put a spotlight revealing where their true ambitions lie.
Understandably, many within the LGBTQ community are not comfortable with this arrangement with the pedophilia group being added, but their alignment was the most expected conclusion to their rainbow coalition from the beginning. When you look at how their goals center around ignoring basic biology and mandatory tolerance, what other conclusion could this have led to? For example:
- If a grown man can identify as a woman and use a women’s restroom or play sports as a female, why can’t he also identify as a 9-year old?
- If an adult is willingly ignoring biological truths such as sex or gender, why is it then such a stretch to willingly ignore age? Or Ethnicity? Or even our humanity?
Do you see the conundrum? You cannot on one hand excuse homosexuality and transgenderism as normal by ignoring genetics and biology, and then deny that same exception to those who are “Minor Attracted Persons” without playing the hypocrite. This is why, at some point, pedophilia will be normalized just as transgenderism was. Anytime one departs from the Biblically sanctioned positions of either abstinence or marital fidelity (one man married to one woman), then everything following simply becomes shades of a spectrum on a downward spiral to sexual deviancy.
This in part is why I believe ALL children under the age of accountability are taken up in the Rapture. When the world gets past the tipping point (the normalization) of where they begin openly targeting children for sexual and ritual abuse (ex. pizzagate), as well as corrupting them to the point where they are spiritually scarred forever, the Lord will come. This (amongst other things like genetic manipulation) is what Noah and Lot’s day had in common; evil (wickedness) was normalized. Pedophilia is the last rung on that sexual deviance ladder.
Some might ask the question, well, what about abortion?
The left successfully enshrined the murdering of the most innocent among us for over forty years now through Roe v. Wade. Granted, abortion had been legal in certain states before 1973, but with the Supreme Court’s decision, abortion became a hallowed rite of passage for the political left. Not just here but in Israel as well (legal since 1977). Since then, over sixty million babies have been killed in the womb. Why hasn’t God already judged us for that and other sexual deviancies decades ago?
If we look back to the days of Noah, God stated that the whole world had become corrupt and wicked (Gen. 6:5, 12-13). Either all flesh had already become completely corrupted 100 years before Noah finished building his ark (Gen. 6:12), or through God’s omniscience, stated it soon would be as a matter of predictive certainty. Either way, by the 600th year of Noah’s life, the ark was complete, the animals had begun converging onto the Ark, all of Noah’s sons were married, and their patriarch Methuselah had died. The bottom line is that all these events seemed to converge in one year (the 600th).
Although we do not know the day or hour, we can see all the prophetic markers converging in our day: sin has become fashionable, the legalization/enshrinement of abortion as a constitutional right, the acceptance of homosexuality and other deviant lifestyles, and finally the normalization of transgenderism and pedophilia. However, simply using Noah and Lot (Luke 17:26-30) to show how this generation is about to be judged seems counterintuitive to my article since they too dealt with that same kind of sexual deviancy in their day (circa 2400 BC).
Nevertheless, these deviant lifestyles have been a part of the human story since Adam and Eve were first expelled from the Garden. Where we see judgment fall is not necessarily when these things occur, but when the surrounding community embraces it as normal. Then a collective judgment falls.
This is why the rise of leftist ideology has been so instrumental in destroying the west and accelerating their date toward divine judgment. Leftism promotes an incremental hardening of the heart by perverting the truth, and even goes so far as to penalize those who would speak the truth. It is an all-out satanic ideological device which prevents anyone under that system from ever coming to the knowledge of the truth as to be saved (1 Thess. 2:16). For this very reason…
“…the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
“Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:18-32).
I believe we are in the last stages of being “given over.”
If we add in all the other markers we see today: The rebirth of national Israel, the reunification of Jerusalem, the geopolitical posturing of the Gentile nations, the rise of apostasy, the rapid advancement of technology, the decline of Christendom, and blurring the lines between truth and lies, we can see we are close. We are in that proverbial 600th year, and the world is too far-gone to ever recover from our impending date with judgment, despite what anyone has to say.
Even within most of Christendom, Christ has been placed on the outside by an increasingly apostate church, and He is currently knocking on the door seeking those from this generation who are still willing to sup with Him (Rev. 3:20-22).
The problems conservatives and Christians face today are deep-rooted and multifaceted. We are facing a generation that has been dumbed down and told they are nothing more than cosmic accidents that came from monkeys. Furthermore, they have been fed cultural and moral relativism for the better part of a century. Adding fuel to that fire is the rise of liberal theology, which diminishes Christ, the cross, and the resurrection (i.e., the Gospel) in favor of social justice, materialism, and a whole host of faulty, aberrant theology.
Make no mistake, Leftism (as a social and political ideology) is wholly INCOMPATIBLE with true, Biblical Christianity. Moreover, because many have bought into the lies of humanism and Leftism, their hearts are hardened and increasingly given over to the spirit of antichrist (1 John 4:3, 2 John 1:7). This willful ignorance is no longer being ignored nor tolerated.
“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).
God has provided His Son as payment for mankind’s sin. God has provided His apostles and prophets, most of whom were martyred for their faith. God has given us proof for our faith in Scripture, in history, in archeology, by His Holy Spirit, and throughout Creation itself as a testimony. In other words, man no longer has an excuse. If man continues on the path he is going (he will), then the only place left to go is into the arms of wrath, judgment, and damnation.
Although these days are growing darker and darker, God has not left us (His Church) here abandoned to our own devices. Whether death comes at one’s last breath, or at the Rapture, God will deliver His own just as He delivered Noah and Lot in their days. It is not my opinion that this will happen; it is straight from God’s word. Even though God is longsuffering and patient, His patience towards evil is not limitless. God will not be mocked. Judgment is coming.
“The non-intervention of God bears very heavy interest, and He is greatly to be feared when He does nothing. He moves in long orbits, out of sight and sound. But He always arrives. Nothing can arrest the judgment of the Cross, nothing shake the judgment-seat of Christ” (PT Forsyth in The Justification of God)
Even So, Maranatha!
